'A play centred on family life in working-class Redfern in the 1950s which captures the colour, spirit and political character of the inner-city suburb. Hewett who lived in Redfern during the Cold War, wrote that her aim was 'to write of a self-contained world ... with its own language, its own folklore, its own values, it’s own ethos, to write of it with both realism and poetry.'
